AUGUSTA, Ga.---Richmond County investigators are tracking the members of a small gang. They want to make sure to stop any more trouble after an armed robbery this week was linked to that group.
Two teenagers are in jail and the search is on for a third in the robbery of the Family Dollar on Tobacco Road Tuesday (October 16).
19-year-old Emanuel Castleberry and 15-year-old Robert McCoy are charged with armed robbery. McCoy is being charged as an adult.
Investigators say they're part of a local splinter gang called Hoover Crips 74GD, and they did the crime to impress some other gang members. The gang is thought to have somewhere between five to eight members total.
Deputies say they still need your help tracking down a third suspect, Jonathan Felton.
"We have reason to believe that this group is responsible for more than just this one particular robbery," said Sgt. Richard Roundtree. "That's why it's important to identify all the members and see exactly what crimes they've committed within the CSRA."
If you have any information on Jonathan Felton's whereabouts, call the Richmond County Sheriff's Office at 706-821-1080.
